Pig six

Last picks of the year and we will try to go out with a bang with a buck on each game in the top flight.

Motherwell are my top pick even at 8/15. Brian Rice seems to think his side are unfortunate world beaters

I’m going for Aberdeen at Tynecastle, even without Cosgrove up front. Signs so far from new manager Stendel don’t really bode well from my view. Coming out with stuff along the lines of, “you’re all shite”, and “given time you will come round to my thinking” doesn’t really instill confidence in a squad and I expect the whole club are just waiting for the January window. As ever Naismiths fitness could decide this one, let’s hope he misses out again.

In the Old Firm clash, I fancy Rangers to get something out of this. This is a tight one to call, and a draw is not too unpalatable for either team so for the first time this season I am going to sit on the fence here and go for a draw.

St Mirren are due a win and they can come out on top against Kilmarnock. Team selection is key here but I am going to gamble that Saints don’t need to play an untested 18 year old midfielder again at centre half.

Elsewhere, I’ll take a strong Livingston side at home on their plastic pitch to edge out Hibs who I think have been carrying a little fortune of late. And lastly we’ll go for Ross County for value away to St Johstone – almost 4/1 which is too much.

That’s it for 2019 – wishing all my faithful listeners out there a very happy and prosperous New Year!
